COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smuttynose IPA is a physical salute to the glory of the American hop grower. The citrusy hop flavor coming from a mixture of Simcoe and Santiams is pleasantly balanced by a smooth bitterness from the Amarillo hops. The beer itself is light bodied and crisp with a golden color that will throw a slight haze, as we bottle it unfiltered. At 65 IBUís, this is definitely not a training-wheels IPA, but is meant for hop lovers looking to satisfy their craving in a way thatís not easy to find. We think theyíll be quite pleased.

Not bad. Nice malts and a lot of citrusy hops, a big explosion of oranges and grapefruits. Nice mouthfeel, highly drinkable.

Pours a dark amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is dominated by hops. Piney as hell. The flavor is full of strong bitter hops with a bit of a thin finish. Extremely piney beer. Iíd love to try a fresher version of this one.

Big thanks to Tom (oldgrowth) for providing me with this one, something Ive wanted to try for several years, and I couldnt believe I missed it on my last trip to New England. Pours out golden with a chunky looking white head. Smells hoppy, and grassy. Fruity and sweet at the same time. Taste is refreshing, slightly bitter, grassy and malty to help balance it out. A really stellar IPA, one of the better ones I have had in quite a while. Thanks!

Bottle. Heavily carbonated, and unfiltered. Pours orangy in color, with a small white head. Very hoppy, with some sweet flavors. This is a good IPA.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2007 Oh joy! Secret ingredient is celery-- you catch it in the nose. Piney hay twang. Really love the label. Great flavor but once or twice Iíve had a sip/bottle that seemed a touch watery/flat. There is junk in th trunk- little bits at bottom.

Beautiful amber. A bit cloudy - appeared to be unfiltered. Long lasting fairly small head. Great to look at. Pleasant flavor - not as bitter as most IPAís which I guess is a matter of taste as to whether you like or not. Good brew. Lively palate. Slight aftertaste. A good IPA.
